Everyone needs affirmation, encouragement, and compliments…your children do too. And the best person to give them that boost they need is YOU: their parent. So to help get you started, here are some compliments your kids need to hear. First, compliment their character. When your child demonstrates honesty, integrity, or kindness, take them aside and offer a sincere compliment. Second, compliment their obedience. Instead of waiting for your child to do something wrong, be quick to notice when they do the right thing and obey you. Third, compliment them for simply being part of the family. Kids need to know that they are valued simply because they are your child. For more on this topic on my blog go to MarkMerrill.com.
